On Wednesday, Spencer had a pretty awesome doctor's appointment. I hate watching my little dude give blood, especially when I'm at the appointment alone. It breaks my heart. But we got awesome results and he looked, sounded, and felt good. If his numbers stay on their current trend, I will be able to go downtown biweekly instead of weekly. That would be Heavenly!

But on top of some improvements in health, Spencer did something pretty awesome: he rolled over!!! According to the interwebs, this typically doesn't happen until 2 - 3 months, and that seems to be the trend with the children of my friends. Spencer was 24 days old! He was getting his Tummy Time and FLIP, over he went! It happened several more times yesterday and was caught on video.

I'm not bringing this up to brag. It's a developmental milestone. Due to sone of his issues, we thought these things would be delayed, not happen uber-early. His muscle tone has been in question since birth and he's showing EVERYBODY what he's made of. His doc saw great improvement in his tone on Wednesday afternoon. I guess he just wanted to blow her mind at next week's appointment!

He sure blew our minds. We're proud parents.

He got "Where The Sidewalk Ends" as a treat for being a trooper at the clinic and for blowing minds all over the place. Todd sent me a text saying, "You're doing a good job taking care of Spencer". It was sweet to hear but it's truly my pleasure. He's amazing. And I wonder if he's kicking ass like this to make things easier on me.

All I know is that watching him roll RULES!!!


  1. Sweet little bulldozer. He's definitely moving to his own rhythm, statistics and charts be damned.

  2. Thanks for updating. You're an awesome mom. I'm happy things are looking up:)
